Friends, have you ever had the police shut down the city streets for your concerts? We have!
On August 20-21, the MMAGI concerts in Bezhetsk, organized jointly with the Foundation for the Development of Small Historical Cities within the framework of the Gumilev Festival, took place.
The young talents performed at the walls of the newly mothballed Nativity Church (the church had been destroyed for many years and is now being restored by the Foundation and volunteers), for which the city police stopped all traffic on Chudova Street.) The young talents also performed in the Gumilev House-Museum, the newly renovated rooms where prominent poets Nikolai Gumilev and Anna Akhmatova lived and where their son, the famous scientist Lev Gumilev, grew up.
Dmitry Borodaev, president of the association, took part in the concerts, and gifted children performed: Alexander Yuzhanin, Anton Pastushenko, Nikita Mosienko, Pavel Yevseev.
It is pleasant to see how, thanks to the efforts of incredible enthusiasts of their business, such as Yuri Schegolkov, small Russian towns are revived, filled with historical memory, which is so necessary in our time. And it is twice as wonderful that our young musicians can see with their own eyes this original Russian beauty, to visit places where everything is saturated with history of our great country.
Thanks to the musicians for the inspired concerts and to the festival organizers for the interesting trip!
